Accademia Costume & Moda participated in the competition for the Leather Goods Category with 10 students enrolled in the third year of the Undergraduate Course in Costume & Fashion, seeing the win for the aforementioned category by Elisa Castiglioni, with her “Lucky Me” bag.
Philomena Seelos, on the other hand, wins the Online Voting category, a contest launched online on all the digital platforms of the promoters.
The contest was conceived and launched in 2019 by the LHCA (Leather & Hide Council of America), the US trade association, and involves, in addition to Italy, also Leather UK for United Kingdom of Great Britain, CLIA (China Leather Industry Association) for China and TLIA (Taiwan Leather Industry Association) for Taiwan.
A jury made up of teachers and experts chose the finalists, who gave shape and substance to their creativity by enhancing the excellence of a unique material: Italian leather.
During all the creative and development process, our students were followed by the Ecopell 2000 tannery, which supplied the leathers for the realization of the bags.
